Ongoing High-Performance Building Operations

We commission our designs. This is critical to our understanding of how HVAC systems perform in the real world and why our strategies can be counted on. In addition, being involved in the commissioning process provides a feedback loop to inform continuous improvement.

We stick with projects post-construction to ensure they perform. We also work with trade partners as a team to address any performance challenges during commissioning and system shakedown. Once operational, we support the building operations staff with training and continue to provide ongoing support as needed.
